Transitional Belongings Bags 

Transitional Belongings Bags are designed for hospital and inpatient settings to transfer personal belongings to family members after a patient has passed away. Artistically designed reusable bags replace single-use plastic bags and decrease plastic waste generated.

Belongings bags are eco-friendly and constructed of 80 gsm 100% non-woven polypropylene and feature reinforced 26” handles with Velcro closure on the top center. Dimensions are 15” H x 20” W x 5 3/4” D. Optional adhesive bag labels for patient information are available. If utilizing an asset tracking solution, a property barcode can be attached to the belongings bag.

Door Hangers

Door hangers placed on the outside door of patients’ rooms indicate a patient is imminently approaching death. The door hangers encourage staff and visitors to observe silence in the immediate area. The door hanger was designed using original artwork of “Birch Trees in the Forest.” Hangers are printed on sturdy 14-pt card stock, 4” x 11” with a glossy UV coating front and uncoated back.

Sympathy Cards

Sympathy cards can be placed in Transitional Belongings Bags for family or mailed as bereavement follow-up. Cards are 5.5″ x 4″ Folded – Standard matte. Sympathy cards and door hangers are available in Spanish.

Memory Garden

Include a Memory Garden Seed Packet, along with a sympathy card to the Transitional Belongings Bag when handing over a patient’s belongings. Family members can create a beautiful wildflower garden in memory of their loved ones.
